CAPTAIN DUNNE may still have it in him to land a sprint handicap and with his ideal draw and on his lowest mark for five years he's taken to lead all the way. The Art Of Racing isn't as well drawn and has plenty of weight but he's won here in the past and should go well. Paul Midgeley holds a strong hand with Haajes and Silvanus, both well drawn and running well enough to make their presence felt, while Sunny Side Up has a chance to follow the selection from her low draw and has dropped to her last winning mark. Jinker Noble is in fine shape but has it all to do on the outside while Tumblewind has the worst stall position of all.
